Trip Planner:   Asia  /  Taiwan  /  New Taipei  /  Wulai  /  Wulai
Escape the bustle of city life with a trip to Wulai, a sleepy Atayal aboriginal village famous for its natural hot springs. At the sanctuary offering hiking, bathing, and relaxation, you can hike the “Lover’s trail” to the village’s 80 m (262.5 ft) waterfall, or hop on the scenic train to its base. A trip to the village won’t be complete without a visit to one of its many hot springs, so pick your favorite private or public spring and bask in pools of luxurious tranquility. When you’re feeling peckish, try one of the indigenous Atayal tribe’s classic dishes: mountain boar kebabs. The village becomes especially popular between January and March, when the cherry blossoms take full bloom. Arrange to visit Wulai and other attractions in New Taipei using our New Taipei online trip maker.
